ABM University NHS Trust to launch staff rostering and absence system

ABM University NHS Trust has appointed Kronos to manage employee rostering and time and attendance across three main hospital sites. The system will cover clinical, administrative and nursing staff.

The staff rostering system, to be used by nearly 5,000 employees, will enable the Trust to improve the utilisation of clinical staff in order to maintain a good quality of patient care.

Meanwhile, the time and attendance solution, to be used by more than 9,000 employees, will provide real-time visibility into staff working hours, reduce payroll administration, improve payroll accuracy. In addition. the system will integrate with the NHS HR and payroll system and monitor staff absence.

Julian Quirk, associate HR Director, ABM University NHS Trust, said: “The delivery of excellent patient care continues to be our goal and is only possible if we can utilise our clinical staff in the most effective way.

“Kronos will help the Trust ensure that the most appropriate staff are available to meet our patient care requirements. A fully integrated system for both staff scheduling and time and attendance will allow us to automate many of our time consuming manual payroll and HR processes and gain real-time visibility into how our workforce is supporting healthcare. Kronos will also help us reduce the amount of time that our managers spend on paper based administrative tasks.”
